This Scarlet Fire is going in the collection, if I can find it.

Anyone know of a copy on etree? I'm still learning how to use that site, and the search function seems buggy..

Jerry clearly loved playing this in 77. What a pleasure to hear.

Amazing, mellow show. Jerry's playing is fluid and intense. Particularly love the St. Stephen and the soft, intricate jam at the end of TOO into Stella. '77 baby--love it!

Subject: Scarlet Begonias
I might be beating a dead horse here, but I've gotta add my two-cents regarding this "Scarlet Begonias": a SUPERB version, with just the right "roll-and-jump" to it, with killer work from Garcia.

For what it's worth, my all-time favorite "Scarlet" is the monumental version from 21May77 Lakeland. Most vistors here have probably heard it, but if you haven't: Get On It!!

This is an excellent show all-around; a highly enjoyable, fairly heavy evening in what is arguably the Dead's finest year.

Subject: gotta complete the run
Well, IMO, this night is not as good as the previous two nights. But I had to get it just to complete my Winterland collection I've been working on for several months now. But there are some spectacular moments happening in this Scarlet and The Other One. I give it a 4 for show and a 3.5 for sound quality...rounds up to a 4 overall.

Subject: Great bit of 77
Excellent sets bring us a killer Scarlet Begonias that ends in a strum out ala' Caution jam rather than segueway into Fire...Row Jimmy in the second set in a stand out version...St Stephen is good...there's alot of good music to be had throughout the March 18, 19, 20 1977 run...

Subject: ahh... winterland
great winterland run - my least favorite of the three nights but that's not to say its an incredible show. Honestly i have to say the st. stephen - the other one really blew me away. Also the terrapin was pretty powerful. Roaring Phil bass allllll throughout. Sound quality pretty good.

Subject: Row Jimmy
This is my favorite Row Jimmy. Jerry plays with such emotion during the jam that it brings tears to my eyes (even after 50+ listenings). I can't imagine a better way to lead into the "broken heart don't feel so bad" verse. Absolutely amazing.

Also, this is my favorite Scarlet without Fire.

I didn't download this show from here, so I can't comment on the sound quality. If it's anything like mine, there's a little hiss but it's not enough to interfere with the experience.

Get this show now!!

Reviewer: jack the ripper - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - October 15, 2004
Subject: Best Brown Eyed Women ever (i think)
Over all a killer show, but i think the brown eyed women is probibly one of the best ever played (also to be compared with 05-08-77). Jerry's solo still gives me chills after hearing it at least 50 times. This show is proof that 77 was the deads greatest year
Reviewer: peter teitelbaum - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - September 14, 2004
Subject: New and Improved Version On the Way Soon!
So I'd suggest waiting on any downloads until it's up - the new version does not have the reel gen and attendant hiss of the previous version, and it does have the Terrapin second encore.
